KINGMAN – A world-class athlete from Kingman will compete at the CrossFit Regionals Friday through Sunday in Salt Lake City.

Tennil Reed-Beuerlein, 30, is well established in the sport that tests speed, strength, agility and endurance.


Reed-Beuerlein was first in the nation last year and she finished sixth at the World CrossFit Games last August.

The 2006 Kingman High graduate hopes to qualify this weekend and return to Madison, Wisconsin, in pursuit of a podium spot at the world championships.

“I'm super excited, but I'm also sort of nervous,” Reed-Beuerlein said. “You train so hard for one weekend. I think it will go fine, I just need to execute.”

Reed-Beuerlein said she is thankful for guidance from her coach, Mike Lee, and is confident in her Scottsdale-based preparation. But she noted she must dig deep and maintain her focus to do her very best against elite competitors.

“I know it’s cliché, and you obviously have to put in the training, but if you don't have the mental side, your training is going to go nowhere,” she said. “These workouts are so grueling and it’s very easy to take a turn into negative town and be like, ‘I’m hurting, I need to slow down.’ Or you can go the other direction like, ‘this hurts,’ but I want it to hurt because I know I’m pushing myself hard. And that means I'm going to win.”

Reed-Beuerlein's parents, Dan and Jan, during an April visit at a downtown Kingman establishment, spoke glowingly of their daughter, her dedication and her achievements. Taking a break during a gym workout, her brother Levi early this month conveyed how proud he is of his sister and how impressed he was that her recent workout included sprinting up Camelback Mountain in Phoenix with weights in her backpack.

And Reed-Beuerlein knows that Arizona and Kingman residents, and her friends at the CrossFit gym downtown, will be pulling for her this weekend.

“They made a video for me wishing me good luck and it literally made me cry," Reed-Beuerlein said. “I'm really grateful to everyone supporting me over the years.”
